On September 9th, 1999, Be the Star You Are!® was born as a 501c3 to empower women, families, and youth through improved literacy, increased positive media messages, and tools for living. Cynthia Brian conceived and founded the charity and Heather Brittany was a young teen co-founder. Today we celebrate 17 years of making a difference as a TOP NON PROFIT and will share stories of our trials, triumphs, and tribulations. Longtime supporter of Be the Star You Are!® and author of Road Map for Graduate Study, Dr. Don Martin, joins Cynthia Brian for a discussion about how to get started, get going, and get in to grad school. Don has spent 28 years in student services and graduate enrollment at prestigious universities. He has coached potential grad students on five continents and will offer his expertise and guidance. Happy Anniversary Be the Star You Are!® and congratulations to all the volunteers and supporters who have helped BTSYA serve the world. Make a donation at www.BTSYA.org.
